    PLANT IDENTIFICATION REQUEST: -------------------------------------- My guess is this is some type of blue lavender. Smells nice but I can't be sure of the exact type. I have to buy one or two and plant them for a relative who is in hospital and doesn't know what the landscaper put in there. Another similar plant I looked up is lavender, but that is purple and smaller, while this grows about 60% larger and is blue, not purple. I included a photo featuring a Home Depot bucket included in the shot to provide a general sense of size of the plant. What...

  • 150,000 Cubic Yards of Debris Stand in the Way of Oroville Dam's Hydroelectric Plant Restart

    Officials at Lake Oroville reduced the rate of water release once again Friday as workers continued make repairs to a damaged spillway and clear debris from a hydroelectric plant. State Department of Water Resources engineers will decrease the flow of water in the Oroville Dam's main spillway from 80,000 cubic feet per second to 60,000 by Saturday morning, giving crews space to dredge debris from a pool at the bottom of the spillway, said DWR acting director Bill Croyle. Engineers had been pumping water out of the lake at 100,000 cfs for several days to make room for incoming storm...
  • Peugeot car plant closed as Muslim workers took ‘too many prayer breaks’

    The future of France, and of Europe in general, can be glimpsed in this episode. “The Aulnay site closed because Muslim employees were constantly taking unscheduled prayer breaks and had become unproductive. It’s the truth. A Peugeot official told me that it was one – but obviously not the only – of the reasons the plant was shut down.” They may have considered it their due to receive payment from unbelievers even while not working. In Islamic law, non-Muslims have the duty to provide for the upkeep of Muslims. British jihadist Anjem Choudary said in February 2013: “We are on...
  • SCUTTLED FORD PLANT HAS MEXICO FEARING MORE UNDER TRUMP

    Ford Motor Company's cancellation of plans to build a $1.6 billion auto manufacturing plant in San Luis Potosi has sounded alarms throughout Mexico. Even as the country is being rocked by rowdy nationwide protests against a Jan. 1 gasoline price hike, the Ford news led the front pages of Mexico's most influential newspapers on Wednesday, and they tied the development directly to President-elect Donald Trump. "Trump leaves Mexico without 3,600 jobs," read the headline on El Universal. "Ford's braking jolts the peso," said Reforma, referring to the Mexican currency's nearly 1 percent slump following the news. "The jobs created in...

    Mexico "regrets" Ford's decision to scrap the plan to build a plant in the central Mexican state of San Luis Potosi, the Economy Ministry said on Tuesday, adding that it has made sure Ford will reimburse any costs and expenses from the state government to facilitate the now defunct investment. In a surprising statement on Tuesday at 11am ET, in an act of goodwill toward the president-elect, the second largest U.S. automaker said it will scrap the $1.6 billion factory in Mexico and will invest $700 million at a Michigan factory, after President-elect Donald Trump had harshly criticized the Mexico...

    We all remember the Jeb! plant that made news during the election for her questions to Trump during the No labels forum in New Hampshire. At the forum, Batchelder asked Trump, 'I want to get paid the same as a man, and I think you understand that. So if you become president, will a woman make the same as a man? And do I get to choose what I do with my body?' Then Trump replied: 'You're going to make the same if you do as good a job – and I happen to be pro-life. Okay? I'm pro-life.' Trump...

    If you grew up during the era of big wheels, horrid hair styles, and the Reagan administration, you probably grew up thinking that green plant you see above you was a really dangerous item. This is especially true if you grew up a Christian during that era. I mean, it was the lowest level “drug” on the list of drugs, but it was the gateway drug. This gateway drug was to be especially feared, because it represented the slippery slope to every other drug or form of immorality. Even trying it once could result in you no longer wanting to...

    Fox News and Google have invited three YouTube personalities to ask questions at the Jan. 28 GOP debate including a Muslim advocate who describes Donald Trump as a bigot and who visually portrayed him as being in agreement with national socialist Adolf Hitler. We have a presidential candidate whose loudest message reeks of hatred and Islamophobia… turning on the news now is scary, and oftentimes, humiliating, the Muslim woman, Nabela Noor, says in a December YouTube video.

    For months, pundits have been trying to suss out Donald Trump. Is he a Liberal? A RINO? A Conservative? Why did he give to this Leftist group? Why did he say this? How could he say that? He's Hitler. He's speaking what we think. What are his views on abortion, on the economy, on ISIS? Everybody, and I mean everybody, is so used at trying to pigeonhole political candidates that they are missing what is right in front of them. Donald Trump can be explained in two simple words: Donald Trump. Donald Trump is, and always has been, about himself....

    Jeb Bush had yet another uncomfortable moment at a town hall in South Carolina yesterday. While he was trying to fend off questions about The Donald and get out his message on economic growth and jobs, a questioner (who was a white guy, by the way) stood up and tagged him with something completely out of left field. (Washington Post) Jeb Bush said here Thursday night that Republicans can win more African American voters by emphasizing a positive message that does not involve promising “free stuff,” a remark that bore echoes of comments by Mitt Romney that drew criticism in...

Her dream came true on Wednesday when the popemobile stopped for the child, and she was given the most tender embrace of the day. While Pope Francis paraded on his popemobile toward the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Sept. 23, Cruz, 5, jumped a security barrier and was soon stopped by security agents. But Pope Francis saw her and motioned for the agents to...

    In an interview with Portugal-based Radio Renascença aired yesterday, Pope Francis declared that the current refugee crisis in Europe is being caused by a “bad, unjust” socio-economic system that worships “the god of money.” In the interview, where questions were posed in Portuguese and the responses were given by Pope Francis in Spanish, the pontiff said coveting money will bring about both human and ecological ruin: “This is the tip of the iceberg. We see these refugees, these poor people who are escaping from war, escaping from hunger, but that’s the tip of the iceberg. But underlying that is the...
